After Mexico, we headed north to Arizona to pause and reflect on our travels. The "pause" that refreshed us was in Tucson and it was a quiet time for us. A very small number of people from the Mexico rally also made their way back to the Pima County Fairgrounds. This was our launching point and a good place to stay for a brief respite from the road.
Some of the mountains surrounding Tucson are snow-capped at this time of the year. The weather, however, is some of the best that Arizona has to offer. We enjoyed sunny days and cool nights. The sunsets each evening never failed to entertain and Arizona's reputation for great sunsets and evening skies remains intact with us.
